Near impossible to answer. For me soul has never been how "nice" a voice is but how a voice gets the lyrics and feeling over. 

 

So off the top of my head without thinking about it too much, and sorry I can't break it down to just two or three

 

O.V. Wright

James Carr

Otis Clay

Otis Redding

Wilson Pickett

 

Nice smooth, natural and effortless voices

 

Jerry Butler

Levi Stubbs

David Ruffin

Joe Simon

 

 

Linda Jones

Aretha Franklin

Ella Washington

so hard to narrow it down to a couple of singers as there has been so many ,i narrow it down to someone who can do all the styles of music while still having a soulful feel to the song im going for  ETTA JAMES & DAVID RUFFIN , thats not taking away from anyone;s chojces as in the past 50/60 years we on this forum have been spoiled to have lived in an era where there was so many quality singers  that so many slipped through the cracks and never got to be major stars it has taken the soul detectives to discover that cult artist and bring it to our attention and we say to ourselves how was he/she not a huge star ,thats why look at everyones choices and nod my head and say good call . :hatsoff2:
